Generations of Italian filmmakers have drawn inspiration from the stunning Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily. This journey on a red-sailed tartan boat to the Aeolian Islands, also a personal memoir of filmmaker Giovanna Taviani, looks at the islands that have inspired such legendary filmmakers as Rossellini (Stromboli, 1950), Antonioni (L’Avventura, 1960) and the Taviani Brothers (Kaos, 1984). For director Giovanna Taviani, the islands have a very personal connection: co-starring in Kaos, it was here that she discovered herself and the cinema. Directed by Giovanna Taviani. Produced by Lorenzo Perpignani.
